Cryotherapy chamber (Vacuactivus)

Cryotherapy chamber is an individual, tube-shaped device to provide cryotherapy for human body.[1] This is a type of low-temperature treatment used to reduce inflammation and painful effects.[2][3]

History[change | change source]

In the late 1970s the cryotherapy chamber was developed by Japanese scientist Toshima Yamaguchi.[4][5]

In the 1980s and 1990s it was introduced to Europe and USA.[6][7][8]

Main uses[change | change source]

Cryotherapy may reduce pain, help with mental disorders, support exercise recovery performance and improves joint function. Cryotherapy chambers are a part of sports rehabilitation and wellness.[9][10] Among main uses are:
